    "salad is not a food!"
    wha-what? I still wonder what they think salad is.
    One of my favorites was a vegetarian co-worker who was drinking a Diet coke and eating Fritos and a hostess cupcake told me that the grassfed steak on my salad would give me colon cancer. I looked at her lunch and then at mine and said "that is a risk I am willing to take."

    To all:
     
    Just a quick change of protocol related to your Whole30 logs.
     
    First, please note these logs are only available to members of the forum who are currently logged in. General browsers of the internet and those searching for Whole30 information on Google will NOT be able to view your log unless they register and validate their registration for the forum. This is for your privacy, so you don't have to worry about non-members browsing through your personal information. This has been our policy since the forums were created several years ago--we just wanted to highlight this for you.
     
    Two, these logs will no longer be moderated by the Whole30 team. They are your personal "diaries," and as such deserve the respect to remain your own form of expression, within our general guidelines. (Verbal abuse, profanity, or any sort of disrespectful conduct is never tolerated on the boards, regardless of where it is posted.) We will only comment when asked, or if we feel that significantly unhealthy or dangerous behaviors are taking place.
     
    Three, if you choose to post non-Whole30 meals as part of your log, or go off-plan on purpose, we gently encourage you to make this clear in your log. This will help avoid confusion on the part of those new to the program. This isn't mandatory, but we are asking you to help us keep the boards clear and easy to use for all, especially those new to the Whole30.
     
    Finally, for all browsing these logs, know that you have no guarantee that every meal or food posted here is, in fact, Whole30 compliant. Read these logs like you read your labels, and when in doubt, ask/search/read to determine whether something posted in a personal log does, in fact, fit the Whole30 program.
     
    Thank you for doing your part to keep this forum supportive, respectful, and in line with  the spirit, intention, and guidelines of our Whole30 program.
     
    Best,
    Melissa Hartwig
    Co-founder, Whole30

    I don't eat eggs at all ever as I am doing the Auto Immune Protocol. 
    I eat a regular meal for breakfast, whatever I would eat at another meal. Steak, chicken fish, fat, salad, a bunch of veggies, yum. 
    Plenty of recipes to be had on Google for Whole 30 breakfasts with no eggs. 
    Enjoy!
     
    PS I can hold a whole chicken in one hand.

    Be sure to take the time to acknowledge your accomplishment thus far. Give yourself the victory, so to speak.
